“You have an excellent staff.”

“I’m very happy for the first time in a year to be relieved of pain and swelling—I feel as if I’ve gotten my active life back!”

“Once again I feel a need to write to compliment you on your excellent and caring staff! As you might know, I was in this morning to participate in a follow-up study. I was greeted as if I was a member of the family who hadn’t been home to visit for a while! All the nurses in the center and especially, Chris were excited to see me and find out how I was doing. I can’t tell you how good it makes a person feel when the staff are genuinely interested in a patient’s health and health care and beyond that, a patient’s life. It makes the challenges of the clinical studies you run much easier to handle. I had a wonderful experience participating in the two-year study and today’s visit was no different. So, keep up the good work! I hope to continue to hear about all of Rochester Clinical Research’s successes from your newsletter and other media outlets. Kind regards,”

L.K., Rochester, NY

“Karen G. always was helpful, even for last minute changes. Vicki, Chris and the rest of the staff were great support and always trying to find new ways to help. Dr. Davis recommended a doctor for my problem, and that was over and above his job.”

M.H., Bergen, NY

“About RCR’s free Diabetes Self Management Program: “I thoroughly enjoyed and benefited from this class. If you offer a sequel to these classes, or even some sessions in more depth, I would be very interested in attending. Thank You.”
